Rebuilding my HTPC/server and am trying to figure out whether to go AMD or Intel. I'm planning on an ATX build with a HD4550 (higher quality HD output than IGP). I know AMD setups are popular for HTPCs, but can't figure out why, other than a small difference in price. I'm planning on using an E7400 or E5200, which are more powerful than the 5050e I'm also eyeballing with similar watt draw at the low clock cycles seen by HTPCs. Anyone want to enlighten me?
